Gleaners Community Food Bank, Inc.
November 24, 2009

My family was able to help stock the shelves at one of the Gleaner's Pantry locations. I like the fact that the people that are served by Gleaners get to pick their food and go shopping for a more dignified and less wasteful approach to distribution. They can take their kids and feel like they are in a normal grocery store. It was a good experience for my family/children to stock the shelves with some of the items we donated and get a sense for the limited meals that needy families would be eating. The volunteer staff that assisted us was fantastic in making the experience meaningful.
